Fluid Bed Dryer
Vibrating Fluid Bed Dryer/Cooler
Dedert’s Fluid Bed Dryer provides for gentle yet efficient drying action, which is ideal for friable or soft agglomerated particles with a fairly narrow particle size distribution and medium size particles (200 – 400 Microns).
Product is fluidized by the process gas stream entering the dryer through the distributor plate. Dedert has a variety of distributor plates available depending on the application.
Process drying air could be designed as multi-zone to enhance drying characteristics in different parts of the bed. Exhaust air leaves the dryer through a hood and is further cleaned in cyclones or bag filters to maximize product recovery while meeting emission guarantees.
Fluidized heating and cooling zones can be integrated into a single unit in a Fluid Bed Dryer. Submerged extended surface heat exchangers can also be incorporated: this approach maximizes the heat transfer rate. Submerged heat transfer area can be retrofitted to existing Fluid Bed Dryers to increase evaporative capacity.
